I mean what a drama queen from dresses to air guns.
He is the one that encourages him with the goggles and all.
I have not been taking a lot of pictures lately because of the weather. We might have a nice day when the weather might be in the high 30's. I guess this is when photographers start taking their inside pictures. I am just not far enough along for that.

I love them, I love them, I love them! Some of my favorites that I have taken all year!
So when taking pictures slows down in the winter, I am sure that I will be able to get on track! So I am giving myself a reason to not be so hard on myself!

So my goal this week is to exercise every day. I know I can do it. I got up this morning and ran three miles. Once I start doing it I know that I can keep it up. It is just the initial getting going! I have to admit though that I am not really a runner and will have to start from scratch. My friend Becky is a runner (if you didn't know) so she is my inspiration. (I want to be able to call myself a runner too).
I loved taking pictures of Lisa and her family! I know them so I was so relaxed and able to really try to capture who they were!
I also took pictures of this cute family in my ward and got some great shots!
Sorry that is an overload of pictures but I loved them all so much that I could have posted a lot more. It has become such a part of me that it is hard to even talk about my life now without showing pictures. It captures a little part of what my days are like. I also get to spend so much time with such wonderful people. It is a lot of fun for me! This week I am getting out and taking pictures of my own kids. I have two families set up for this week so I just hope the creativity will still be there!

Sometimes people are too pretty. That is definitely this family. Just cute!
So this week I am going to slow down and try to get centered. I am going to take some time just to watch television. I think everyone needs a little television time. My kids are so cute right now. That I want to enjoy them a little more. Especially since this Halloween my little one is going as a pretty, pretty princess. Fun for a girl but we will see what looks we get when they realize he is a boy. We tried dinosaur, monster and a jedi but nothing. He wants to wear a dress.
Just a side note. I love this couch!

I love when the lighting is just right and the family is so willing to try different things. I wonder what goes through their mind when I ask them to meet me in a stinky alleyway behind downtown and I want them to sit on my vintage couch. Everyone seems really willing to try just about anything.
This week I miss my friends I spent last weekend with. I wish we all lived closer! That is such not life though. Some of my favorite people I hardly ever get to see. Very hard!
FYI I am putting more of this family on my photography blog just in case anyone wants to go over and take a peek!

Since my husband is becoming an iron man I am not feeling so good about myself. I always thought well I have a hobby so I don't need to take care of myself. Well as I watch his transformation. (He is asking me to feel his biceps all the time) I have decided it is time for a change. I have also decided I cannot change all at once or I go into a panic and eat more than should be legally allowed. So I am going to start slow. I am not going to eat after 7:00 p.m. Going to try really hard only to drink diet coke once a week. Small changes. You can only eat an elephant one bite at a time.
I will keep you all posted with what I am going to do for my next bite. Any suggestions would be helpful--so don't be shy and tell me like it is.

When I am with these girls I feel like I am home. My friend Amy's hands are so familiar. When you touch them memories come flooding back and her smile lights up the entire room. She is the coolest mom and no one can make me laugh like she can.
Christy has beautiful optimism that makes you want to try harder to be a better person. She is so willing to try new things (except for a pony tail with a double headband). I love the person she is and how she has so much inner strength.
My life with Shelley has had so much laughter and so many tears. I have felt so much for her that sometimes I have crossed the line. I love you Shelley more than you will ever know.
Thank you girls for a terrific weekend and thank you for letting me take your pictures. That makes my day. I am grateful for our friendship and will try harder to pick up the phone and make a connection.

The kids liked the truck shots the best. I liked the old barn wood and all the different textures.
This time of year I also start to miss my family. Things were so busy over the summer that I have not stayed in touch the best I could. So I am looking forward to trips to Boston and Dallas in the next couple of months. Love the free flying thing.

I want to learn to feel this--
"really? so what if johnny thinks you have too much spit, you're alive!!! alive, and no one can take that from you, no one can lessen the glory of that in any way. If something is worth doing, it is worth doing with everything you have. if it's not, then why are your spending precious moments of your life doing it?"

These are the kinda of pictures I get to take in the fall. Kim recognize the belt. Her favorite by the way. I always hope that people don't mind that I am on their property. But what a perfect barn and lake. One day I am going to be looking down the barrel of a gun because I just hop out of my car and take a picture anywhere.
This weekend I am going with some of "my girls" to St. Louis for time out for women. There are seven of us going and needless to say I probably won't get any sleep. I think I am going to take some drugs because I am getting old and last year it took me a week to recover. I am really looking forward to it. We even went on a test drive in my van to make sure all the luggage fit. What dorks we are!
This is my last shot of the day for you. This little girl kills me. Yesterday at the ward party she wrestled a greased pig to the ground.

I am lucky that people want me to take their pictures and how fun it is for me. The very thought of taking someone's picture is so exciting for me. So for those of you who will be spending time with me in the future just be prepared that I probably will be making you and your loved ones pose for pictures!
